>> Current Allocation for 401(k) and Roth:

10% Vanguard Value Index
26% Vanguard REIT Index
16% Vanguard Small Cap Value Index
26% Vanguard Total International Stock Market Index
22% Vanguard Total Stock Market Index

If adding emerging markets would be beneficial, what percentage would be adequate? And which fund holdings in the "old allocation" should be reduced to accommodate it?

I think 10% in emerging markets would be a reasonable allocation in your situation. I'd take it all out of the REIT bucket since I think 26% allocation to REITs is at least 16% too much.
